    What's up, guys. This may be my third time starting a journey thread. Each of the previous times, I have either realized that I didn't have the resources or the time. I'm a college kid in the U.S. who does some other work on the side, but now that work has ended and the semester is coming to a close, so I decided to commit myself and some resources to making this happen.

    My Goal: $100 a day through building social media networks and directing traffic to sites with PPC set up on them

    My Resources:
    • I purchased Twitter Supremacy today (great tool; I advise looking into it) as well as 5 dedicated proxies just as starters
    • I have a Facebook page with 7,000 targeted likes in one of my unique niches
    • I have a Twitter account with 5700 followers in one of my unique niches
    • I have a simple blog running for about a week now. It isn't SEO optimized, but the plan is to direct traffic, not necessarily receive it through search

    Day 1
    • I continued to grow my niche Facebook page...generated about 70 new likes today
    • I created 5 other Twitter accounts in Niche 1 and used Twitter Supremacy to gain 300 new followers in Niche 1
    • I got my Facebook account for Niche 2 to 1000 friends and 100 followers
    • I started a Twitter account for Niche 2 and got it to 20 followers


    Will update on my progress tomorrow
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Quick question:

    Would you mind to share how did you get 7000 likes in a targeted niche for your facebook page?

    I have had this page for awhile. I started it with about $50 in targeted Facebook ads, then grew my friends list and invited all of them. With semi frequent updates and sharing it, I grew it over the course of about 6 months

    UPDATE

    Niche 1


    • Have grown my 5 Twitter accounts to a total follower count of 6574 (One large account with 5700 followers and 4 smaller with about 180 each)
    • The method I am using to generate followers is working pretty well (mass follow-unfollow).. I generally get a follower for every 4 people I follow
    • I have grown my Facebook page to 7200 likes
    • I purchased a domain name and Wordpress hosting from GoDaddy with a promo code (REAL cheap) and am converting that blog over now
    • Reason for the transfer is so I can make use of plugins and monetize the site. I am getting on average 60-70 visits a day even when I am not posting new material. I know this isn't much or significant, but I want to go ahead and get ads running on the site so I can at least start making back what I have invested little by little

    Niche 2
    • I haven't spent as much time working on this niche
    • I have grown my Facebook account to over 1100 friends and over 100 following
    • I have created a Twitter account that has over 100 followers in 2 days
    • I have seen slight revenue from this niche through using Juicy Ads and BinBox (not much, but helps my ego to see green)

    Goals
    • Continue to grow Facebook pages and Twitter accounts at the rate I am
    • Complete the Wordpress transfer and monetize the blog
    • Create more Twitter accounts and get them automated
    • Use Facebook ad credit I received from GoDaddy to grow the Facebook page

    Additional Niche
    • I have been running a paper-writing business catered to college students for awhile on my own. I am a great and fast writer and have seen significant income from this, but I am doing all the work.
    • I have been marketing this business solely on Twitter, but I created a website and purchased a domain name today.
    • I will be reaching out to hire writers soon so that I can take on business without doing the work myself

    I'll be following your journey and I hope to see you complete it. I'm in a similar position as you and $10 a day sounds pretty good to me so I'll probably mimic some of the things you do. If I find something that works, I'll let you know. Thanks for sharing this journey :D

    Day 12

    Niche 1 has started making money. I can generate around $3-5 a day if I make a point to write a good article then push it well on social media and through other avenues.

    Niche 2 will need to be dealt with in a few weeks. Got locked out of my Facebook account that is driving all of my traffic.

    I also started two other sites. One is a service that sells social media followers, likes, etc. The other is a sports site that I am going to run along with my friends as a hobby, and also monetize it. Both of these sites have great designs. I just need to set up social media for them and start directing traffic. I paid to set up backlinks for the social media service. Need to do the same for the sports site.

    My social media accounts are continuing to grow. I am seeing significant increases in my reach for Niche 1. Need to do the same for the other 3 niches.

    My essay writing service is all automated at this point. I market in my usual method, then contract the essays out to other writers. I have seen pretty good money from this, but haven't been able to pay enough attention to the marketing lately.

    I am in the middle of exam week here at college, so I am going to be having to take a break from IM for a little. My Christmas break will be dedicated to getting all of these niches running at full speed and profitable.

    Day 14 -- 2 Week Mark

    Total Investment = around $175

    Total Revenue = $193

    Total Profit = $18

    I am honestly pretty happy with $18 profit considering I have been busy with the last few weeks of the college semester/exams so I have made the investment, but haven't had a tremendous amount of time to start putting all of my ideas in place.

    My revenue right now is coming from Adsense, writing essays, and one order of Youtube views (Yes, I made my first sale tonight!!)

    Writing essays continues to be my #1 money maker, but it is also the #1 time consumer. I am going to look at hiring a few writers so that I can contract these essays out with a slight profit margin. Adsense has been slow, but steady. I can usually make $5 a day solely through directing traffic to blog posts from Facebook and Twitter. Like I said, I made my first sale of Youtube views tonight. I am waiting to hear back from the customer on how exactly he came across the site. I have to figure out a better way to market the Twitter followers, Facebook likes, etc.

    All in all, today was probably my most successful day yet. I launched a $50 ad campaign on Facebook geared at securing subscriptions to my email list, and in the first day of a 4 day campaign I got 345 subscriptions ($15 spent of the $50, and they are still rolling in as I type).

    Metrics:
    • Facebook page for Niche 1 with 7400 likes
    • 5 Twitter accounts for Niche 1 with combined 12456 followers
    • Email list for Niche 1 with around 700 subscriptions
    • I will have to work on social media accounts for Niches 2 and 3 over Christmas Break

    Goals moving forward:
    • Continue to grow my social media accounts. This is where the large majority of the traffic to my blog is coming from, so I definitely need a large reach.
    • Get Niches 2 and 3 fully operational and come up with a marketing plan for them. This will be done over Christmas Break
    • By the end of the ad campaign I will hopefully have about 1500 on my email list, so I am going to put together a plan for marketing affiliate products to them.

    I am honestly very satisfied with what I have been able to accomplish in so few days with so little actual time invested. I am ready to finish my exams so I can get home and put in some long hours in getting all of these niches fully operational and profitable.

    Total Revenue = $768

    Total Profit = $593

    A couple hundred visitors a day. The majority of my traffic is coming from Facebook. I can usually get 2-3K from my Facebook page per day
